to self-defense, but i'm not going further than that. >> why can't you say that you don't agree with the turks? >> because i'm not going to get in a public spinning match with allies on either side, not going to do that. >> and what is worse, public spinning match is worse than hundreds of people dying every day. >> i don't understand the question here, there's not a question here, you're just looking for a fight, let's go-- >> no, the fight is already on. >> yes, absolutely. >> what's going on over there. >> absolutely. >> and you guys by refuse to go say anything about what you're trying to do or refusing to say whether you agree or disagree with the comments that are being made by your allies or others-- >> we. >> that makes things worse not better. >> we of course agree that rhetorical attacks against israel are not helpful at this moment. is that what you're looking for, matt? >> that's victoria nuland a spokeswoman for the state department hammered by matt lee who wanted more of a response to this statement from the prime minister of turkey. it read, those who speak of mus

president. >> brian: joining us is the navy commander from the office of secretary of defense under george bush. he is jd gordon. is it up to the president to get more involved to tell morsi to stop with the absolute monarch thing. >> i think the president should stand up to the muslim brotherhood and say we will not send aid dollars to egypt. morsi put himself [pwao-fr] the courts and law. it is one dick traitorship replaced by another. we need to get tough on egypt. >> steve: when the arab spring first started people were optmistic and it is not turning out the way we hoped it would. >> no, in 2010 the survey poll in egypt found that 17 percent of the egyptians were favorable to the united states and 24 percent favorable to al-qaida and 60 percent to the islamic brotherhood. if you had general elections and threw out mubarack you would get the muslim brotherhood in charge. >> brian: are you encouraged that the people would egypt decided they would not stand with him. >> this is an encouraging sign. i jipt has mod rate secular parties. we should support them. that's the only way to have c
? >> the jeep ad. that was the biggest one. they spent the last 14 days of the election on the defense. day after day they had to answer for that. it put them on the defense for a long time because it was not true. >> the flip side of that, you put the events back in spring, defining him. a lot of regret among republicans about how early you define him. the kind of campaign -- why was that a brilliant insight? >> at the time it was risky because of super pacs. we were going to spend a majority of our money in the summer and not of the fall. we were going to get out spend because we believed that late tv did not matter as much. it turns out we were right. >> based on what you know about the nation's mood and geography, everything you learned, what republican candidate would have had the best shot? >> that is a good question. we were honest about our concerns about jon huntsman. i think he would have been a tough general election candidate. as someone who helped manage his confirmation, he is a good guy. we looked at his profile and thought he would have been difficult. >> and you thought by
billion of that is out of national defense and $30 billion of that at the domestic discretionary -- $50 billion of that is out of national defense and $50 billion of that is domestic discretionary. will the republicans keep obama on a short leash and give him an allowance every month in return for better behavior or will they give him a debt ceiling that goes along time? what will happen? one option is looked to history. two years ago we faced exactly this situation, the 2001 2003 tax cuts all lapsed. we had a republican house coming in, and democratic senate and democratic president. why would that not the way you do? obama says i will hold my breath until i turn blue and stamp my feet. 2 years ago he said he did not want to raise taxes on small businesses because it would damage the economy. now he thinks this economy is stronger than it was two years ago and we are in better shape to take the economic hit. it is an interesting question. if you go over the tax cliff and taxes are raised dramatically, the house would have our past -- will already have passed. on the sequester, i though
much in the defense for a very long time. what was really exciting this time was made was the first time we did it for a ballot measure that was because we had been defensive for so long and built such a strong ground game in november talk to everyone in the state for so long about this issue in understanding how people moving along. our work is really changing hearts and minds because we write if you can imagine half the people with you and how far and another sent squishy number in the middle. the question is, are those people really in the middle and just don't know enough about who we are and if we can get those folks to move would have a chance. simeon was a great example of a scene in opportunity and seizing it to go forward and proactively putting something on the ballot measure. i have a lot of folks in this room and i think somebody should be asking, you know, using a ballot measure, so proactively using a ballot measure? i thought you actually would be a post using a ballot measure because that i've been fighting for all along. and i don't think we should ever put in minor

the question has the defense and intelligence community accurately forecasted their 10-year, 15-year need for spectrum, and are we making decisions about reallocating that to the private sector in the context of the potential real need that these communities might have for it as, you know, they become more connected, they pick up mobile, you know, drone connectivity, network-centric warfare? have they predicted their needs before we make decision about reallocating that? >> well, so just some facts. in the u.s. the government -- military and otherwise -- has primary access to about 60% of the spectrum, and commercial industries have access to about 40%. when you think about the numbers and compare the number of devices used by government versus commercial, it's not even close. >> yeah. >> and so it's hard not to rook at it and think -- not to look at it and think this is out of whack even taking the most aggressive projections on what government users will need. and, in fact, there really isn't a lot of disagreement that on the government side -- this is true on the commercial side, too,

they are not afraid to watch defense spending get gouged and taxed go up on every american if budget deal doesn't satisfy their priorities. in other words, they'd rather walk the country off the cliff than watch president barack obama gave on long-held liberal priorities. to call the republicans bluff on this? >> the progressives are clearly feeling their oats at this point. they are feeling good about the election but i think also obama feels like he gave away too much or was too conciliatory last time around. the last debt crisis we had made the republicans look back. it hurt their image and you can see them trying really hard this time to paint the picture as they are the reasonable ones, it's obama being unreasonable. that said, what we're probably looking at is they are going to kick this can down the road and give us a short-term resolution to get past january and then do this all again next year. >> but at the same time, jared, the public is supporting the progressives or the democrats on this. polling shows this. 72% republicans should compromise. 72% of the of the people polled. 67% wa
are going to be under 2%. we have defense spending at the end of the fiscal year which perked up a little bit. exploits were surprisingly strong. if you look ahead to 2013, where is the strength of one come from? households have maintained their spending only by driving down their savings rate to just a little over 3%. so there is not a lot more to come their, and household incomes are lower now than they were a year ago. so i think it will be very hard, even without an fiscal hit to the economy. even without that, it's going to be hard to have 2% growth next year's. cheryl: martin county mentioned that he will tax cuts. it seems that no one really wants to extend that at this point. but that is going to go away on january 1. >> i think that is right. cheryl: what does that mean you? >> is a big number. probably about three quarters of a percent permanently coming out of the after-tax incomes of households. so most of that would be subtracted from spending. >> maybe 1% of gdp? you have to% grooth of gdp, it could be 1%. is that what you're saying in this economy? >> well, 70% of this econ
, in terms of the military supplies, the security, there is no is really, not the defense minister, the prime minister, none of the people who complain about obama as putting pressure on israel, none of them disagree with the fact that obama, the obama administration has been the most supportive administration of any on a level of strategic and military cooperation. when you look at this war in comparison to 2008, there was nearly unanimous support for israel. all of the senators, members of the house were saying, israel has got to defend itself. and when the israelis wanted the united states to go in and help for the cease-fire, the secretary of state what they are despite the fact this was not a prior issue. the issue is can the united states support israel, and at the same time be an effective a broker that takes arab interests into account? that has been the issue. it is not the level of support. host: richard, fla. on our line for independents. caller: it has been said that the muslim brotherhood has the same goal as al-qaida in the sense of wanting to establish a radical islamic governm
there and there is a goal he stopped a lot of the shots and he did amazing things on defense but you couldn't sing to govern the the state. it's not reasonable because of the way that it was structured, so it was a difficult case to make and romney didn't do it. >> the one thing talked about today is controlling or shrinking the size of government. just talk about taxes. the objective of holding the line or lowering taxes is ultimately supposed to contain or reduce the size of the government. do you feel closer or further from that goal today? >> much closer. one is the tea party and the other is the right and budget. up until the tea party, i would have been here and told you obama is going to spend too much money and you can't get the american people upset about spending too much. you have to wait until it becomes a tax increase that's why the protection pledge was i think the best defense against the government. the same misreading of his mandate that he's doing now so when some of us suggested the misreading of the mandate he did it for years ago. he threw away the approval rating to spend the stimulus
treasury secretary geithner and even defense secretary leon panetta has made it clear he would like to leave within the year. the current white house chief of staff still considered the odds on favorite to get the nod to become the next treasury secretary from the president. it's believed he has the greatest chance here it's believed of getting senate confirmation. that leaves open the job of white house chief of staff. and i'm hearing that among the names that are being considered for that role are ron clay, the man once biden's chief of staff and did himself i'm told a great service in president obama's debate prep despite that bad first debate the president takes responsibility for it, does not blame mr. clain. and another name i've heard floated is dennis mcdunna. earned the great respect and admiration of the president. a young man not often considered in that light but the president admires him. but that of course leaves open the question who would take over for secretary clinton and for leon panetta. and those are some dicey questions right now given what dana has just report
